Once upon a time, Seann William Scott was going to star in a Kevin Smith hockey movie called Hit Somebody. Plans changed, Hit Somebody became two movies and Scott signed up for Goon instead. He's still starring in a slapshot (and Slap Shot)-fueled comedy, only this one was conceived by the writing duo of Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg, who were inspired by the book Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey.
Really though, this movie is all about giving us a platform to see Scott take on Liev Schreiber in a knockdown fistfight on ice. No, seriously. That's what it's about. Just watch the trailer and you'll see.
